This another of my knots which hasĀ  been serving for some years. While it was not strictly necessary as a grip improvement, it is one. I originally tied a much taller knot, but it interfered with the function and reloading — so — off it came. This one seemed to be the best compromise. I have used it daily for a long time and never felt the need to replace it. Still, given past history, it is only a matter of time and whimsy. That is the reason that I chose to immortalize this knot now. I have been looking at this knot more and more often when I have tied a knot that is “too good to waste”.

This knot is tied in the ubiquitous paracord. It is an 8 Lead X 7 Bight Turk’s Head, doubled.

While writing, I have decided to add this to the list of items open to popular vote. Should the old knot be rewarded for its long and meritorious service by being granted longer life? Is there another fancy and functional knot you would like to see in its place? Let me know via comment — the choice is now yours. As always, all thoughtful input is greatly valued.

Thank you for stopping by; come back again:
William
